About this pro

Our golf instruction involve every aspect of the golf game
At Scott Matuza Golf Academy, we teach students how to understand, experience and most important, allow them to feel what makes an effective golf swing, at the same time, we provide each student with a clear visual of the formula on how to repeat that golf more often, to improve their game with more solid foundations, that will not fade during a golf round.

Its easier to get better, if we can get the basics down

In reality, every golfer is striving to hit good shots more often during a round, our goal is to be able to make each student understand the basics and ket swing factors, that once learned, it will make their body and mind more free, letting the casual and effortless swing motion, that will get better with practice.

I love helping clients get better at golf while understanding their personal abilities on the golf course. 

Most all my clients & friends consider me the "Short Game Guru" since I have such an elaborate way I go about making sure the Short Game is what is solid before I let you go. No Short Game means no Lower Scores an in this game we can't have that...

    Scott was great! I arranged a two hour group golf lesson for my boyfriends 30th with him and his two buddies. Scott was quick to respond to all my messages and questions. The guys had the best time with Scott and learned a lot. He also didn’t stop right at the two hour mark either. I can’t thank him enough for driving two counties away with under a weeks notice. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a golf instructor! Thanks again Scott!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My typical new client or student routine varies. I like to always go over the proper grip stance and set up. But after that I like to see physical limitations. Meaning I will put you through hell that first lesson. If I need to, I will break your swing down and rebuild it back up all in the same Session. What we try to do at Scott Matuza Golf is try to find something to relate to in your swing to Many of the analogies I will play off in my head and break it down for you in term that you understand and can deliver once I put the golf club back in your hands. That's why I say I am a tough swing coach. But I will almost guarantee improvement with our style of instruction. Between my assistant and I it's like getting two private swing coaches for the price of one.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Been playing this game for 30+ years already.  Played colliegate golf at NCC & JWU having the pleasure of feeling what winning a National Title felt like.  After college I turned professional in 2005 and tried my luck on the mini tour circuit before realizing my talent and passion for instructing.  Since then I have created my own unique style of teaching.  I was know on tour for my wedge game and short game so I boast those two things hugely amongst my clients.  The next is course management.  I feel with my set of skills and knowledge from past experinces I can help anyone. Especially with still having a bunker in my backyard for everyday practicing. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I include all the costs of practice balls for our Lessons. My regular price is 150.00 per lesson depending on what your exactly looking for. This is so people know I am serious on the value of my time w/ my clients..

All my multiple lesson series are spread out to fit your specific wants & needs to make sure your always improving. So we will always have options.

I really like to customize everything to each specific player.  As i said earlier I am a Touch, Feel & Tough coach, I just want you to improve an not waste your money, your time an my time.

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching and instructing top players because I was trying to become one.  My wake up call came back in 2008 season when I failed to make a cut after posting -10.  In that moment I knew I was a great player but just wasnt going to make it to the fulltime playing section.  So I took a step back an asked a lot of my close friends in the business, PGA Tour Pro buddies and took all that information then decided that being a short game coach & helping everyone at all levels get that same understanding that I have and that same passion for that game that was instilled in me long ago.  Well that is priceless in itself an I put all my eggs in one basket to go after it.  

What types of students have you worked with?

I instruct every type of player.  The better of player the harder coach I will become.  I demand improvement or I have multiple collegues out there that would love to steal your money an not show you anything like they do.  My players range from Senior Tour, PGA Tour, Web, a little more on the multiple Mini Tours with a few college an High School players.  I love the multiple levels of players since I play with a couple current tour players when they're in town. Everyone loves when the TUZ gets going on there short game issues. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

As well as owning my golf academy I am also a PGA TOUR REP for Garsen Golf Putter Grips.  We have Stenson, Finau to name a couple on our team.  I am also a PLAYERS STAFF REPRESENTATIVE for the WILSON GOLF COMPAMY as well as a couple others. It's amazing being around these top players an maintaining a relationship with other pros & reps. This keeps you an your game in check esp when you promote that scoring area game the most. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

What are they looking to get out of private or group lessons with a swing coach. What are their personal goals. And be honest with your goals and expectations. I always tell my clients I can tell If they're practicing or not. Reason being most Pros won't tell you this. I for one don't sugar coat anything which is good an bad. But most good coaches can teach one thing 10 different ways. The key to a good coach is watching your improvements. And making sure your always improving cause if not again your wasting your time & money. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

You want to see what area or areas of your game must improvement. Then I for one being your coach will look at your entire game from the ground up as well to see what needs the most work.
I prefer to work your Short Game (Putting, Chipping, then Sandplay first) then we can work that FEEL during those classes. From there I would want to ask your coach about your full swing. Since your FEEL & SHORT GAME are the most important areas to concentrate on. Think about it: if you hit the long ball but have no control or say you do, when you get into the scoring area of your game with the Irons & Wedges this is where you need to preform in order to shoot lower scores. Your coach doesn't hit it that long but inside 160yds you don't stand a chance. ESP on the greens with the Garsen Golf technology. It's completely different once you feel what I feel. That's what I think everyone should be working on. Look at the top 10 on any tour. Then ask me a question cause 90% of them have exceptional FEEL & SHORT GAMES an are solid with that 7iron to the putter.
